Please also follow Christian Universalist minister David Spatz at his new blog Christian Universalist Fellowship.
He was ordained last year under the auspices of the Christian Universalist Association -- the most robust, I think, of a constellation of small Universalist groups distinct from the Unitarian Universalist Association. He also sits on its board. (So perhaps the "Independent Universalist" moniker isn't right, but will do until I come up with something better.)
And -- heavens! -- he lives in Maryland, less than an hour or so from me.
